NEW GLOUCESTER – Dear Claudia featuring Leah Finkelstein, Herb Clarke and Matt Hansen will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, at the New Gloucester Village Coffee House.

As lead vocalist, Finkelstein sings blues, jazz and rock. Her soulful vocals and powerful keyboard style are backed up by Hansen’s fluid bass lines and drummer Clarke’s intense earthy beat. The trio got together in January 2007 and has been gathering a loyal following ever since.

Tickets will be available at the door. Suggested donations: adults, $10; seniors and children under 12, $5. The coffeehouse at New Gloucester Congregational Church features local and up-and-coming musical artists the first Saturday of every month. Proceeds benefit the church at Church and Gloucester Hill roads.
